IT was always destined to take a moment of brilliance or a mistake to settle this game in the 90 minutes.

From the early forays of a forlorn first half it had extra time written all over it.

And there was little to change that perception after the break, despite a more end-to-end approach.

That was until Jason Shackell upended danger man Jeremy Helan in the box.

Five minutes after Atdhe Nuhiu stepped off the bench, the 6ft 6ins striker stepped up to bury the spot kick for his fourth goal in six games, and in doing so knock Burnley out of the Capital One Cup at the first attempt.

It made it all worthwhile for the noisy 1,052 following from across the Pennines, and almost justified the thousands of empty seats in the home ends.

The cup is not the greatest concern for the Clarets this season.

Premier League survival is the main aim.

But when you consider that two defeats have come from the first two games then progress into the third round of this competition would have been preferable.

And there was nothing to suggest they were not capable.

But as at Swansea the much changed line-up could not convert possession and chances into goals.

Take Nuhiu from 12 yards out of the equation Matt Gilks, on his debut, did not have a save to make.

There was some consolation from Milton Keynes, with MK Dons beating Manchester United, Burnley’s next opponents.

With Louis van Gaal’s side also searching for their first win this is either a good time to play them, or a bad one. Neither Wayne Rooney or Robin van Persie were in United’s 18-man squad at Stadium MK, while Angel di Maria will be keen to make an early justification for his British record £59.7m transfer fee from Real Madrid.

But the Clarets can only concentrate on themselves, and not all of those who were handed a chance by manager Sean Dyche, who made seven changes to the line-up in total, did enough to force him to change his hand when league action resumes in front of the world’s media on Saturday.

The front pair of Ashley Barnes and Marvin Sordell were more involved in the second half after a relatively quiet first half, but could not do enough to test Chris Kirkland, one of four changes made by Owls manager Stuart Gray, Burnley’s former first team coach.

Michael Kightly and Ross Wallace toiled out wide without too much in the way of end product.

Had it not been for the noise emanating from the away end the night would have felt more like a reserve game, given the lack of atmosphere otherwise.

The first half offered little to suggest there was anything at stake either.

Gilks was largely inactive, although that might have changed had Kevin Long not got a vital leg to stop Chris Maguire's right wing cross reaching Gary Madine in front of goal.

The defender, making his first start of the season, was at full stretch to prevent Madine getting what would have been a clear sight of goal, despite appearing to be in an offside position when the ball was played.

There was still a scare for Gilks though as the ball bounced off the angle and out of play.

Long was on hand to offer further protection to the debutant keeper, conceding another corner in similar circumstances 10 minutes before the break.

In between Wallace floated a free kick over the bar.

Scott Arfield playing centrally, drove through midfield with the ball, shifted it wide to Wallace who crossed left footed to pick out Barnes six yards out, but the striker's header was narrowly off target.

Long was shrugged off the ball by Jacques Maghoma but the defender recovered, backed up by Shackell, to block the shot and take the sting out of it.

Before the break Arfield sends the ball back to Kirkland, supposedly, after a break in play but it caused more trouble for the keeper than he might have anticipated, having to stop it from dipping under the bar.

It was the highlight of a rather drab opening 45 minutes.

Things livened up afterwards with chances for Barnes and Sordell.

Matt Taylor came on to try to affect things, but after the ball pin balled around the area he turned a half chance wide.

Wednesday threatened, but without major menace until Helan showed Shackell his heels and was clipped.

The referee pointed to the spot, and Nuhiu welcomed the chance to add to his impressive early season tally, driving down the middle as Gilks dived to his right.

Burnley brought on the big guns - Danny Ings and Lukas Jutkiewicz - but time was against them to take the game into extra time.

4,000 (1000 Away) to watch you humbled against Sheff Wed's, one of Yorkshire's biggest clubs and a sleeping giant. Didn't "sell out" there either.

Now then, at least Rovers had five and half thousand against little Scunthorpe.

3 games. 3 defeats. Five goals against. 1 goal for. Out of a cup competition. Down by Christmas.

Better off without distractions such as the League cup, its what big clubs like yours can do without when there is the real business of the Premier League to concentrate on.

Us on the other hand were desperate for a financially rewarding cup run but our hopes were dashed by the mighty Scunthorpe.

Still at least Dyche got to see one of two bit part players, perhaps a blessing in disguise and will prompt a little more urgency to bring in a couple of players before the window closes.

One thing less to worry about.

Ancient history my friend.

Winning things when we were funded by a multi-millionaire counts for little if when once all the money has gone we sink like a stone. Could we have won the League Cup without Walkers millions? No, we could not.

I deal in the here and now and I'm sorry to say it but the reality is we're a struggling mid-table second division side who were dumped out of the League Cup by a team that had recently dragged itself out of League Two. We have no reason to act cocky because it just makes us look even more desperate. The fact is Burnley can afford to do without this cup competition whereas we are desperate for the financial gain we could have taken from it. Looks like the Clarets have the last laugh on this occasion.

Show a bit of class for once you moron.

Oh dear. Things just aren't going well are they? Never mind though cos you had a great pre season, the juke can't stop scoring, he'll fire us to premier league safety!!

On a serious note, you need to spend big before the window closes. January will be too late and you will struggle more than you have to date to bring players in of the right quality. The next week will determine how the rest of your season plays out.

For the benefit of Pompey claret:

Even with 10,000 missing fans we still get more than B?*rnley, don't we? Like last season when we averaged 15,000 and they averaged 10,000 - and they were promoted and we didn't even reach the Play-Offs.

Albeit Premier League hillbilly's, whereas we've only got second division hillbilly's, and fewer by the week by all accounts.

Come on chaps, you're making us sound desperate now, yes we're all jealous of Burnley, yes they've had a difficult start, but how bad are we going to look when they start picking up points which they will, and especially if we continue to struggle in the Championship?

I said play it safe, we've got FFP sanctions around the corner, god help us when they publish our accounts in December, the Burnley fans are going to have a field day with it.

Still, the good folk of B*rnley will be out to watch...not B*rnley but Manchester United on Saturday. Couldn't be bothered getting off their scrawny backsides to watch them get promoted but want to watch Manchester United.

4,000 tonight with over 1000 from Sheffield. Rovers had five and a half thousand against little Scunny.

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.

I actually said to McClaret earlier today that I thought you were playing Man U at exactly the right time this weekend as they are in total disarray at the moment, their performance against MK Dons tonight proves that.

But I wasn't aware of the Burnley result tonight, and the pathetic showing from their so called fans.

Ah well, it probably is still a good time to be playing Man U, at least their fans will fill the, ah... for want of a better description... stadium, and if Dyche can get them up for it? Well, who knows?

6 pointer relegation game this early in the season, hate to admit this but I will actually be sticking up for the Clarets for this one game.

4,000 (over 1000 Away) to watch you humbled against Sheff Wed's, one of Yorkshire's biggest clubs and a sleeping giant. Didn't "sell out" there either.

Now then, at least Rovers had five and half thousand against little old Scunny.

3 games. 3 defeats. Five goals against. 1 goal for. Already out of a major cup competition. Down by Christmas.

Even with 10,000 missing fans we still get more than B?*rnley, don't we? Like last season when we averaged 15,000 and they averaged 10,000 - and they were promoted and we didn't even reach the Play-Offs.
Yes you got that right, you didn't reach the play offs and you never will. Rhodes off to Hull by next Monday and the Venkys pocketing the cash. I would be more worried where your goals are going to come from, Varney, Brown, do me a favour, you have more chance of signing Ronaldinhio again. Oops sorry you didn't sign him first time did you ?.
The only thing it tought us tonight is that we don't have enough strength in depth in the squad, the good thing is we are still playing Premier league football, whereas you besides playing with yourself are playing Championship football.

I'm a Rovers fan mate.

From my webbed fingers to my extra toes, 100% Rovers.

I am simply realistic about the situation. Burnley are now the bigger and better club. We've had our time in the sunshine, bought and paid for by Jack Walker, but sadly now the roles are reversed and we have to look up at them in the Premier League. And the worst part is that we all know they'll come good, and probably at the worst possible time for us.

Tonights no show from the Claret fans just goes to show that all these part time Charlies who turn up for the Chelsea and United games are only interested in one thing, and it isn't Burnley FC.

Dyche fielded a very strong side against a second string Sheffield Wednesday, yet wasn't able to negotiate a way through, then he has the audacity to go on about refereeing decisions!

Especially hilarious extracts from the Dyche excuse book was him once again having to mention how little money he has had to spend this summer. Well Sean, whatever Burnley have spent out of the £120 million jackpot, its a lot more than Sheffield Wednesday have spent.
I don't often listen to Dyche's ramblings, mainly because I don't understand much of the croaky noise that comes out, but a pattern does seem to emerge of him blaming officials and expecting sympathy for not spending any money. Problem is Burnley have the money, they are just making a conscious decision to not spend it. Some would call that sensible, others would call it suicidal.

I can imagine one or two of those who have spent £700 on a season ticket might be unhappy if no more money is spent this summer. Where else is their money going? Never mind though, the painted seats and new tunnel looks very impressive!

The pressure has to be on to get a win against United on Saturday. Not many sides have looked as poor as they have this season.

I said we needed to sign some quality and we got Reid FFS. Now we are a laughing stock, if we get dumped by united our losing streak may become an issue.
We could end the season on the lowest points haul ever. How embarrassing would that be, its time the town and fans of Burnley tipped up and bought a player between us if these tight wads won't cough up.
Sack the board and Dyche is starting to bore me with his excuses

Big money needs to be spent on players now , the ground looks tidy but you can't polish a turd, the board needs to invest it's profits back into the club.
